Working Group on
CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES
A review on the prevalence and risk of violence against children with disabilities (Jones, et al., 2012) found that children with disabilities are, overall, almost four times more likely to experience violence than non-disabled children, including 3.6 times more likely to be victims of physical violence, and 2.9 times more likely to be victims of sexual violence. This Working Group aims to increase awareness of this issue, promote prevention strategies, clarify issues related to definitions, and facilitate consistency in data collection and measurement.
We encourage interested ISPCAN members as well as nonmembers to participate by subscribing to this page, submitting a blog post, or posting a comment in the Forum below. We welcome participants from all disciplines and with varied experiences.
